Amy Adams Comments On Fan Reactions To New Wonder Woman’s Body

Amy Adams was caught off-guard the last time she was asked about our new Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot.  Seems like she might have been this time as well, but damned if she doesn’t pull our great answers anyway. 

And let’s not forget when she politely said “No, thank you” to the idea of a love triangle between Lois, Superman, and Wonder Woman. These new statements seem to be from what looks like the same round of interviews (she’s wearing the same blouse in both videos) Adams did for American Hustle. When an MTV interviewer mentioned there was a lot of negative talk on social media about Gadot’s body, Adams had a look of concern.

“I’m not familiar with her body shape,” she said, adding that she doesn’t “buy into that,” meaning women need not look a certain way to play a comic book character. She certainly didn’t think Lois had to in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.

“I’m certainly not a classically drawn woman as they exist in comic books, and so I had to embrace that I had just had a baby, I still hadn’t gotten my waist back,” she told them. “And I was like, you know, Lois is not about proportions, Lois is about her intellect and her savvy reporting skills and her empathy for Clark, and so I just didn’t think about it. And I know anybody who’s working with Zack, if she’s working with Zack, and she’s going to be Wonder Woman, she is going to be yoked, man. He is going to make her a beast.”

For those not sure, “yoked” means a strong or muscular body. And I only say that because i had to look it up.
